Guernseys of the Past

If you’re curious what a Guernsey cow looked like in the past, here are some snapshots from the 1950’s through 1980’s of Guernsey cattle from the Graysmarsh & Family Hill bloodlines (and some other cows purchased by the farms):

    Such beautiful girls! I live just north of Mark VanMersbergen and I miss seeing the Guernseys of days gone by. We gave him a bad time when he switched to Holsteins, but now he has BEEF cows out there! And a couple of horses!! Now I’m waiting for the flying pigs… 😉 Anyway — my grandpa was partial to Guernseys, so whenever I see one, I am reminded of the simpler days (not easier) of dairy farming. Good memories. Thanks for posting these Guernsey beauties!
